This week, Haiku Horizons reached its landmark 100th post! 😀 Best of all, it’s still going strong. The word prompt for this week is ‘spend’. I wrote a haiku about making the effort to spend time with loved ones. It is strange, but many people go the extra mile to be nice to friends and acquaintances and the occasional stranger, but tend to neglect the people closest to them. Perhaps the proverb ‘familiarity breeds contempt’ rings true?
Won’t you spend some time with me
